Corinthians fans attack Paolo Guerrero

Corinthians fans attacked Peruvian striker Paolo Guerrero after invading the team's training centre in Sao Paulo in protest at the Brazilian team's recent struggles, club president Mario Gobbi has said.

Paolo Guerrero overcame plenty of trauma to make it to the Club World Cup. Fitting, then, that his goal capped a successful tournament for Corinthians.
Paolo Guerrero's goal in the 2012 Club World Cup final gave Corinthians the title over Chelsea.

Gobbi said the protest turned violent and fans grabbed the striker by the neck. He said other club employees were also attacked during Saturday's confrontation after about 100 fans broke in. Nobody was seriously injured.

The training centre, in Sao Paulo, will be used by the Iran national team during the World Cup in the summer. Corinthians' stadium, the Itaquerao, will host the tournament's opener between Brazil and Croatia.

Gobbi told Radio Jovem Pan that Guerrero, who scored the winner against Chelsea in the Club World Cup final in 2012, was attacked.

"They tried to strangle the player who scored the most important goal in team history. We didn't deserve this," he said.

He said the club had already contacted police and would help authorities arrest those responsible for the attack, with security camera footage being handed over to investigators.

"This is a case for the police to handle," he added. "Our employees don't feel safe any more."

The fans cut through a wire mesh fence to try to reach Corinthians players. Local media reported that they also targeted striker Emerson Sheik and former AC Milan forward Alexandre Pato, the club's most expensive signing last year, along with coach Mano Menezes.

The fans left after a brief meeting with Menezes. They had stayed inside the training centre for about two hours, Gobbi said.

In a statement, Corinthians condemned the "act of vandalism" and said they tried to had postpone Sunday's match against Ponte Preta in the Sao Paulo state championship to "preserve and protect everyone."

He club said their players had not wanted to play but the match would go on because "several commitments" had already been made with television rights holders and the local football federation.

"Despite the threat and despite the lack of ideal conditions, Corinthians will play in respect to the club and its fans," the club said.
